Neutropenic

Today we had quick checkup ... counts are still low (ANC is 200) but Colin is hanging tight so no need for a transfusion. He kept busy while we waited for the blood count results playing at the activity table with Erica and keeping himself occupied with multiple games. He was having so much fun he didn't want to leave! Kudoos to the Smilow center and wonderful staff!

We now enter into a stage where Colin will be off all chemotherapy, giving his bone marrow and his blood counts the chance to rebound. From there, Colin will start the longest, yet least intensive part of treatment, maintenance. We have been told to except a 2-4 week period before he is ready to begin this final phase of treatment.

Thank you for all the love, prayers and support you have been sending.
